I just signed up to a Philosophy course which promised to not indoctrinate me and actually try to brainwash me to believe that there is a god and he wants to save me. The discussion last week was about the art of 'being' and understanding who "I" am. The speaker ended the session with: 'Be still and know that "I" am God.' -I went up to him and asked, before I judge and block off your teachings altogether, is there some literature I can read that can help me to understand what you are trying to tell us here? He replied with "The Power of Now." by Eckhart Tolle.
I've started to read it, but am finding myself to be incredibly cynical. Anyone else had a stab at it?
